The Manila bay came to life again as sea sports enthusiasts gathered together for an annual event hosted by the Manila Broadcasting Company and the Manila Boating Club. One of the highlights of the event was an intense dragonboat race competition among club crews and elite teams in the Philippines.
Although the venue was kinda crammed up plus the scorching summer heat, never that anyone had shown a faltering spirit. My very loved team Onslaught Racing Dragons slowly yet in full throttle geared its way to the semi finals, and the Men’s Open Division got a hold at the finals spot. Being the only club crew in the finals and the only one without the word “Philippine” before our name, making it to the finals surely was enough pride for the consistent training we have had before the competition.
